What’s the Answer? (visualizing genomic interactions)

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those questions and answers here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

This week’s highlighted question gets to another visualization problem. Again, people are generating cool new data types in a large scale that need ways to view the results. And it’s not a type of visualization I’ve seen much about, so I was interested to see what the answer might be. But if you have other suggestions, do bring them over to the thread.

Question: visualizing genomic interactions


I’m looking for a way to view genomic interactions data generated by ChIA-pet or chromosome conformation capture technologies. I’m not interested in circos plots or heat maps, I want an interactive genome browser solution. For an example of what I’m looking for check out the browser shots this paper: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0092867411015170



There was a selected answer and it might suit the purpose, but seems like there is room for more options. Bring ‘em if you got ‘em.
